This work captures a remarkable year in boxing - 2008. Thomas Hauser has become 'must reading' in the boxing community, and his latest book demonstrates why. "An Unforgiving Sport" brings together Hauser's 2008 articles from and, in which he exposes the inner workings of HBO sports, goes behind the scenes at boxing's biggest fights, revisits historical figures like John L. Sullivan, and offers revealing portraits of Don King, Oscar De La Hoya, Manny Pacquiao, Ricky Hatton, Bernard Hopkins, and a host of others. "Booklist" praised an earlier collection of Hauser's articles as 'one more testament to [Hauser's] talent and passion for the most elemental of our sports'. "An Unforgiving Sport" adds to Hauser's definitive record of the contemporary boxing scene.
